MOSCOW, April 26 (RAPSI) – A court in Russia’s Vladimir Region has registered three suits lodged by Alexey Navalny against a penal colony over assignment of the status of a convict prone to escape to him, the court’s press service has told RAPSI.

The blogger seeks to declare the decision illegal.

Navalny is serving sentence in a penal colony in Pokrov, a town in the Vladimir Region.

In February, a Moscow court ordered Navalny to be jailed for 3.5 years in the Ives Rocher embezzlement case. In early March, the ruling was upheld. The blogger is to serve about 2.5 years behind bars. He is serving sentence in the Vladimir Region.
